Specifically playing with a wedding ring on, I have no problems playing with my purple ceramic mudslide slide on my pinky, after all its a finger most of us avoid using when we first start out, but playing with a ring on my ring finger, I simply can't do, I've been practicing since the better half and I got our rings - we're not married yet, and I can't do it. I keep seeing videos of people the likes of Slash, Zakk Wylde, Lenny Kravitz, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen and many other guitarists playing with not just a wedding ring on their ring finger of their fretting hand, but every finger. I have no problems playing with rings on the fingers of my picking hand, but right now all I seem to be doing is using my wedding ring as a three string slide and scratching the hell out of it, I've had to have scratches polished out of the damn thing three times now, it's getting to the stage where if I can't learn to play with a wedding ring on, I'm going to have to wear it on a chain round my neck whenever I'm playing guitar, and I'd rather play with it on. So any married guys out there or people who wear rings, whats the trick, do I need to lower my hand, right now whenever I play power chords that involve the top string and I fret most of the notes I play on the top string with my thumb, do I need to stop doing this and slide my hand further down the back of the neck so my fingers are further forward from the bottom of fret board? How do you do it, I don't want to keep getting the ring polished, and if I have to wear it round my neck on a chain whenever I play because I can't learn to play with it on, I'll end up wearing it on a chain all the time. I've got around a year to learn how to do this, so I'm more the willing to put the needed effort in. Or am I over thinking it, and it is something that will eventually come naturally as I get used to wearing a ring all the time? I know it sounds silly, but it has actually become a big worry for me.
